Around 1985, the Getty Center called for an evaluation of the quality and
status of art education ... focused attention on
highly successful programs already in existance whose curriculum content
included, not just the making of art, but toward understanding art.
Understanding art lies in the exploration of history, art criticism,
aesthetics as well as the production of art...(DBAE) serves as touchstone
toward greater teaching ability. It shows art teachers how to deal with the
ambiguity of
the artistic process by virtue of accountability: Provide education, not
just an activity. As art teachers, we need to demonstrate that art is more
than "hand traced turkeys" and "cotton ball Santas".

Well said.
